Arsenal and Barcelona may engage in an incredible swap deal in the summer, as Bellerin and Dembele may trade sides after the World Cup.

Both stars are tied to long term contracts, which is why any deal would be very difficult to complete. But with both sides interested in the other club’s player, a swap deal may be an option.

Last summer, Ousmane Dembele completed his dream transfer to Barcelona as the young Frenchman completed one of the biggest transfers in history.

After sparkling in the Bundesliga last season, Ousmane Dembele became one of the hottest properties in world football. The 20-year old French star quickly went from teenage prodigy to a crucial first team member for Borussia Dortmund.

But an injury early in the season, coupled with Philippe Coutinho’s move to Barcelona earlier this month has taken the shine off the Frenchman. Demeble is now frustrated and is looking at other options.

Bellerin is also another one that may consider moving away from his club.

Hector Bellerin’s Arsenal career is at the cross roads right now, as the talented Spaniard looks completely devoid of confidence. To be fair to him, Bellerin is not alone in the Arsenal squad, as every member’s confidence in that dressing room is shot to pieces.

Bellerin was dropped for Arsenal’s last match against Brighton away. It did not make much of a difference though, as Arsenal lost their fourth consecutive match, something that has rarely happened in Arsene Wenger’s career.

The Spanish right-back has come under a lot of criticism lately, as Bellerin has not produced the performances that Gooners have expected him to do. We also hear that Hector Bellerin is looking to move away Arsenal, as he is contemplating a move to Italian giants Juventus.

But with Barcelona back in the race, Bellerin will certainly consider the Catalan giants as his first preference.
